    Resumen: European Union policies are encouraging the implementation of renewable energies to reduce fossil fuels dependency. This is further motivated by the effects of global warming and the relevant temperature rise in large cities. Thus, it is increasingly important to analyze the large-scale potential of solar energy, making use of the roof availability for renewable energy generation in cities. Furthermore, it is important to couple this analysis with the energy demand of the buildings analyzing the self-consumption possibilities and help in the decision-making process in regional investments. The proposed methodology estimates and matches the roof potential for electricity generation by PV and the building's energy demand, including the building characteristics as a novelty. As a result, we calculate the self-consumption possibilities and the retrofit requirements of a selected housing stock. Our methodology starts with the quantification and classification of the residential stock. This includes the characterization of the types of dwellings in the regional residential stock, taking into account the size of the municipalities. Then the energy demand of the dwellings, depending on the characteristics of the buildings and the roof generation potential, is compared. Catalonia region (Spain), including the city of Barcelona is studied to show the contributions of this methodology to the energy transition. Results indicate that between 8 and 30% of the residential electricity demand of the municipalities can be covered by rooftop PV. Important energy retrofits (reductions of 80% of the energy demand) are required to approach the feasibility of self-consumption. Nevertheless, there is a limited potential impact in larger cities due to the reduced available roof area per habitant.
